Urgent Care

What is urgent care?

If your child is in the throes of an ear infection or you’ve split your knee open in a fall, these are two great examples of when you would benefit from urgent care. These conditions aren’t ones that can wait a day or a week for the next available appointment, but need medical attention right away.

The most common reasons people seek urgent care are:

  • Minor injuries or accidents
  • Sprains or fractures
  • Infections
  • Respiratory problems (asthma or allergies)
  • Flu
  • Rashes
  • Urinary tract infections
  • Gastrointestinal issues, such as vomiting or diarrhea
  • Eye problems

There is obviously any number of reasons why you may need more prompt medical attention at Lake Immediate Care and Clinic, and the staff does everything in its power to see you as quickly as possible to help remedy your medical problem.

What urgent care services are offered?

When you come in to see the team, they first sit down with you to review your symptoms. After a physical exam, your doctor may order X-rays to take a closer look at the affected internal structures. Lake Immediate Care and Clinic also offers an on-site laboratory for faster results from blood and urine tests, among others.

To treat your medical problem, the team has many tools in their arsenal, including:

  • Prescription medications
  • Suturing and laceration repair
  • Casts, boots, splints, and slings

The staff’s goal at Lake Immediate Care and Clinic is to help you find immediate relief while also addressing the underlying issue.

What is the difference between urgent care and emergency care?

The urgent care services at Lake Immediate Care and Clinic are designed for non-life-threatening problems. If you or a loved one is experiencing any of the following, you should call 9-1-1 immediately or go to your nearest emergency room:

  • Uncontrollable bleeding
  • Loss of consciousness
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Severe pain
  • Fevers in babies less than three months old
  • Severe burns
  • Pregnancy problems

Ultimately, you should use your best judgment. And if you have any questions, feel free to call Lake Immediate Care and Clinic.

For urgent care, Lake Immediate Care and Clinic is open every day from 8am-6pm, except Sundays. It’s always a good idea to call ahead to ensure that someone can see you.
